Michael Wolkind QC and Sam Magee, instructed by Tuckers of Manchester, acted for MM, who travelled to Liverpool for the Anfield match the next day. At a nightclub in the early hours there was a running argument between other Arsenal fans and another London man. MM’s defence at trial was that he acted only as a “peacemaker”. The victim was punched to the floor then kicked to death, but MM had intervened only to try and stop the fight. He was speedily acquitted of both murder and manslaughter.
